Ramipril: how long until it has an effect?

Posted , 2 users are following.

I've been taking Ramipril for 3 weeks, 5mg for the first 10 days, then 10mg daily but my bp has hardly changed. Does anyone know how long it usually takes to have an effect?

    Usually about 48 hours how high is it for them to medicate you

      I would say that you need to get rechecked by gp as they maybe need to increase your dosage till it comes down a little lower, are you in a high risk group

      You should maybe ask if there are any lifestyle changes you can make that would help your bp lower without any further meds
